FRACAP x SIMONS

Italian boot company Fracap, founded by Antonio Capello,  has been known for making the best quality mountain boots for years. The brand continues to make the same handmade boots to these days under the third generation of Capellos.  In fact, the entire brand has been built as a family tradition. So it should come as now surprise that they have partnered with another great family brand – Simons.

The Fracap x Simons collection consists of two M120 boots for men. Simons’ buyers visited the factory in Monteroni, where every pair of Fracap boots are handmade, to create the two styles that are exclusive to the Canadian fashion retailer. One style is black calf leather with a white sole; the other is dark brown calf leather with a beige sole. The connection between Simons and Fracap goes deep, each with over 100 years of family-owned history and both run by brothers who are descendants of the founders. Simons and Fracap also have a shared commitment to creating and offering quality products and serving people from generation to generation.

The Fracap x Simons collection launches in-store and at Simons.ca is available now. Each pair retails for $450 and comes equipped with a brush and leather conditioner.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
